Maryam James is a hard taskmaster. A balls-to-the-walls type of woman who started her company with nothing more than a strong idea and a loan and turned it into one of the Top Fortune 500 companies in America. There’s only one person she trusts implicitly and that’s her personal assistant Xavier Sun, who, much to her dismay, has just turned in his resignation.
Maryam is the one woman Xavier can’t live without. She may be in command in the boardroom, but he's in control in the bedroom, and if he learned anything from being by her side for the last seven years it was Maryam doesn’t know how to take ‘no’ for an answer. So it’s no surprise to him she basically forbids him to quit. Leaving is the last thing on Xavier mind, however. He’s willing to put his job on the line, if it will get Maryam to realize the depths of her feelings for him.
No one writes about the joys to be found in losing inhibitions better than Lena Matthews, and she doesn't disappoint her readers in The Good, The Bad and The Naughty. There are so many elements of this story that please the senses it is hard to single out just a few, yet its greatest accomplishment is that nothing is what it seems or really should be. From the very beginning, starting with the role reversals, this novella takes the reader on a journey with the main characters that is a nonstop sensual adventure. One of my favorite aspects of the story is complexity of the characters and the excitement of wondering what will be revealed, and who will ultimately be "in control."
Ms. Matthews is the queen of steam: penning sexy scenes with lush dialogue and carnal content. She can build anticipation between her characters with a few words and a glance, is it any wonder this newest novella is so good? It is difficult to find specific passage to single out as examples of merit when the entire novella is worthy of mention. I highly recommend The Good, The Bad and The Naughty - it is fabulous!
